5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous transfer &.NEVER BEFORE SEEN FOOTAGE!!!! June 15 2004
Format:DVD
That is correct fellow Marx Fans. I have always had a fond place in my Marxian Heart for Love Happy. Now there is MORE happy to love! In fact, over 6 minutes of footage I have never seen. Not on previous release versions on VHS, Laserdisc, at the LaPaloma Theatre when I projected it in 35mm or in my own 16mm print! The footage adds a LOT to the movie. In one scene Groucho describes how he has tracked the sexy Madame Egelich (Illona Massey) all over the world. He whips out a series of Photos showing them to us the audience with him holding Illona in various sexy poses. Concluding with one photo of her in a 1950's style batheing suit. Another restored scene has Chico, who assigns himself the task of stopping the owner of the theatre from kicking the troupe out for lack of rent payment. Before the drooling owner is paraded a bevy of beauties. Groucho says in the voiceover, "He wisely chose the Blonde on the end". Pretty racy by 50's standards. We even get a new scene where Raymond Burr tortures Harpo by placing him in a giant washing machine! There are additional small scenes sprinkled thruout, but those are the best. WOW! It is so great to see new footage of Groucho, Harpo and Chico. BUY this disc! You will be Happy you did. Johno

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware! Nov. 23 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Some reviews have understated the problems here. Marylin's cameo is not even one minute long - it's more like 30 seconds, and not very memorable. In fact, Marylin is completely upstaged by female lead Vera-Ellen (someone I'd never heard of), who has a very sexy dance number.
Not only does Groucho appear very little, but until the very end he does not interact with his brothers. Apparently they decided to add him at the last minute and shot several solo scenes featuring him that are interspersed throughout the film. This is unfortunate because Groucho's persona, in my opinion, was the center of the Marx brothers act. Harpo's antics grow wearisome in extended doses, and Chico is even more limited. Groucho, after all, was the one who always dropped cynical comments about the mediocre romantic storylines that were attached to the later Marx films, and thus made it possible to endure those storylines. Without his presence here, we are overwhelmed with the shabby, sentimental story about a theatrical troupe trying to put on a Broadway show.
There is one thing to recommend the film - it has Chico's most amusing piano number (after the one in Animal Crackers), as he attempts to improvise a duet with a violinist.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Marx Brothers' swan song is quite enjoyable Feb. 25 2003
By Josh P.
Format:VHS Tape
I know this movie doesn't hold a candle to
"Duck Soup" and "A Night At The Opera", but don't judge this film too harshly. Watch the movie, see what you think, you're entitled to your opinion. I think this movie is pretty good. Harpo has center stage instead of all of them, mainly Groucho, in the spotlight. Groucho only has a secondary role and appears in about 1/3 of the film. Harpo as himself is kept an eye on by Ilona Massey as she tries to get her greedy hands on a diamond necklace. This becomes unoticingly passed through a group of actors rehearsing a show. As Chico gets in on the action and Groucho steps in on the scene, the chase is on when the diamonds are hunted down...almost. Give this a try. You're going to laugh at a few parts, but again it isn't tops, but it's worth watching. Groucho's part is in 1/3 of the film as he delivers only one or two one-liners, but Chico and Harpo still display their musical talents. There is a hint of them sluggishingly getting through the film, but don't let it detract you from seeing the brothers' final film together.

While it's not the best of the Marx Brothers movies, Love Happy is important for several reasons. First, it is the Marx Brothers' last film together; second, Harpo Marx wrote the story; and third, it marks Marilyn Monroe's big screen debut (not counting the exceedingly small bit parts she had landed before 1949). I am sure I'm not the only person to buy this movie just to see Marilyn, and she is unmistakably dazzling in her brief appearance, making quite an impression on Groucho and a number of contemporary moviegoers. While you may see her featured prominently on the video jacket, be aware that her screen time, as memorable as it is, lasts no more than a minute. With Groucho's own time fairly limited, the onus for making this movie funny and enjoyable falls on Harpo and Chico Marx, and they don't disappoint.
Groucho plays detective Sam Grunion, and he narrates the first two-thirds of the movie before actually getting involved in the action. He is on the trail of the stolen Romanoff diamonds, but initially he is two steps behind Madame Egelichi and her henchmen (one of whom is Raymond Burr is a very un-Perry Mason-like role). As things work out, Egelichi is herself two steps behind Harpo, who unwittingly snatches the can of sardines holding the diamonds while filching food to feed a group of struggling off-Broadway players. These players aren't crucial to the plot, but Vera-Ellen shines as Maggie Phillips, dancer, actress, and all-around enchanting young woman. Chico worms his way into the production, serves as Harpo's interpreter in a couple of crucial scenes, and helps Harpo protect Maggie and the other players from danger. Groucho joins in at the end to make the diamond-hunting foray a full-blown farce worthy of the Marx Brothers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not at all bad for a final film
In the first place: God never meant for 60 year old Marx Brothers to make movies. That being said, the story goes that Harpo wanted to do a film by himself. Read more

I am a huge fan of the Marx brothers. I own all of their movies except "Love Happy" and "At the Circus". They both stink. It's not the acting, it's the writing. Read more

If you want to get this beacuse it is the last Marx Brothers movie or because of the Marilyn Monroe scene OK. But other than that, it is not a good movie. It is not funny. Read more
